5 fast spring cleaning hacks
Clever shortcuts that make more time for you – you’ve gotta love that!
1 SOCK IT TO ’EM
Dust your blinds or ceiling fan using a cotton sock and a solution of equal parts white vinegar and water. Clean these fixtures first, as dust will drop on to the surrounding surfaces.
2 WHIZZ ROUND
Make light work of your vacuuming with a high performance, cordless, freestanding vacuum cleaner. Its extra-long running time and super-light design allows you to whizz round your whole home in record time.
3 ALLERGY ALERT
Vacuum your hard floors rather than sweeping them to prevent allergy-aggravating dust wafting into the air.
4 SOFA SO GOOD
When spot cleaning your sofa or rug, avoid saturating the fabric and remember to blot dry rather than rub.
5 FRESHEN UP
To remove lingering smells from your sofa, sprinkle it with baking soda, leave for 20 minutes, then vacuum it up.
